This weekend seems to be a big one for BioWare. On top of another Mass Effect 3 multiplayer community event, brand new multiplayer DLC has been announced which will include new maps, weapons and characters. Oh, it’s also free.
In a message coming in from General Hackett himself, “allied forces have matched Krogan mercs and Batarians with Asari justicars for unconventional warfare. Their mission: to create resistance on Reaper-occupied planets to tie down local Reapers.” What this really means is that all who participate in Operation: Beachhead across all platforms this weekend, including the PS3, will be granted a +25% XP bonus starting from 6PM PST Thursday April 5th, to 5AM PST Tuesday April 10th.
The recent pattern of events imply that these community affairs will take place on a weekly basis. Last weekend initiated Operation: Raptor, while the weekend before that saw Operation: Fortress, and the weekend before that, Operation: Goliath.
Funny BioWare should mention Krogan, Batarians and Asari as these races seem to be the stars of their recently announced, upcoming multiplayer DLC: Resurgence Pack.
Dropping on April 10th for Xbox 360 and PC worldwide and for PlayStation 3 owners on April 10th in North American and April 11th in Europe, the Resurgence Pack will include 2 brand new maps, 3 new weapons and 6 new characters. The best part about this DLC, you ask? It’s absolutely free. Check them out below along with the recently released announcement trailer! (Click on images for a bigger size.)
According to BioWare Blog’s FAQ, these new maps will be playable immediately after downloading while the weapons and characters will be available rewards inside Reinforcement Packs. Additionally, each character will have their own unique abilities and loadouts.
